This isn't just a video. The program is included in this archive.
This is Picasa version 2.7 Build 37.64, from 2007
At this point it was owned by Google. This version is fully-featured freeware. I personally recommend using this particular version of Picasa because it is fast, stable, and feature-rich.
Google would later go on to create version 3, which ran much slower, added some minor features and a major search glitch shortly before discontinuing the product altogether in 2016.
This version of the program has both inclusive and exclusive search. You can search for multiple keywords and you can also exclude words within the same search query. Searches also include file names and folder names. This version automatically detects pre-existing keywords stored within an image's EXIF or XMP metadata, with the ability to directly update that data.
Supported file formats:
GIF (doesn't animate)
RAW (.crw .nef)
Microsoft Windows XP/Vista/7, or later
256 MB of RAM
100 MB available hard disk space
1024x768 screen resolution
Internet Explorer 6 or newer
Able to exclude keywords from a seach
Automatically reads and writes keywords stored in image metadata

considered the best by those who have used
I was looking for Picasa and I saw your information, thanks. I miss the times when things were simple, today a photo app is considered good if it camouflages what the person is. Society was warned 20 years ago but much of humanity still chooses to take the blue pill and die in the Matrix.

The best image organizer I've ever used
I've been using this program for about a decade now, and have yet to find anything better. The only other program that ever came even remotely close was Microsoft Photo Gallery as a very distant 2nd place, but its interface was nowhere near as fast and elegant as Picasa.
I currently use Picasa to manage a massive archive of over 200 thousand images totaling about 180 Gigabytes in size, and it still runs pretty smoothly. It'll even detect when you're using Remote Desktop and offer to use a low-color mode for better performance. It's very rare to see a program lovingly polished to this level of detail.
